Windows 7: Unable to move desktop folder to another location

Unable to move desktop folder to another location

Hi!

I am having problems with moving the location of the desktop folder found in the users folder in my local drive where windows is stored to another partition. Everytime I finish moving the location of the folder to another separate partition, it reverts back to the default location upon restart.I don't know what seems to be the problem, or if there is some registry fix to this

Welcome to the forum, Are you moving them by right clicking on the folder and choosing "location" enter new path, then click move, then apply?
Drag and Drop may not work when doing this.

U can try to either take ownership of the files or they maybe used by a program that is opening when u trying to delete them or u can install unlocker and see if u can make something
